[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - It has often been debated if hold'em poker is purely a game of luck or a game of skill. IRuleThem - Hold'em Poker Simulator uses extensive mathematical formula and near real-time large scale experiments to analyze the outcome of any given scenario and prove that with the correct approach the underlying mechanics of poker describe a game of skill, where the probability of every outcome can be anticipated beforehand.
Rather than using purely theoretical calculations, iRuleThem creates extensively configurable large-scale tests in seconds based on user entered scenarios and extensive configuration to simulate the playing of thousands of hands. Offering input via either the custom created interface or specific voice controls iRuleThem can provide in-depth analysis faster than general speed-of-play, therefore allowing enthusiasts of the game to gain a better understanding of game dynamics in a variety of scenarios, even during online gameplay.
Scenarios are defined by entering hole cards for yourself and opponents as well as the turn card and river card. At any time all possible outcomes can be simulated and quick look icons show at-a-glance probabilities of different hands and winning positions, with values shown based on either drawing or not-drawing any further community cards. Outcomes can also be viewed in a series of bar and pie charts and full configuration supports simulation of up to 10 simultaneous players and also allows customization of the simulation size, probability format (odds, percentage, probability) as well as bet, call and possible win sizes.
Despite the complex underlying mathematics and fast optimized simulation, iRuleThem is a tool that is accessible to anyone with an interest in hold'em poker and extensive user guides, video demonstrations and instructions are available online.
"iRuleThem is a comprehensive analysis tool that can simulate any given hold'em poker scenario in seconds and quickly determine the likelihood of all possible outcomes." commented Roman Keller, creator of iRuleThem. "This tool will allow a better understanding of the game for all hold'em poker enthusiasts, aficionados and students of the game."
Launched by Rikeebytes, iRuleThem - Hold'em Poker Simulator for iOS puts the power of large scale empirical poker simulation into the hands of all poker enthusiasts. Obtain near real-time results and a greater understanding of the skill to winning via voice control or quick tap inputs.
